The Dyson Awards are one of the highlights of the year for us - after all, what else could bring a life-aid bazooka to fruition? But James Dyson - yes, he of vacuum cleaner fame - needs your help. He needs YOU to enter the 2011 awards with your problem-solving inventions. Anyone studying, or within four years of graduating can enter the awards as long as they're from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, UK or USA; with the winner being awarded £10,000 ($15,576) to put towards developing their invention, and another £10,000 for their university. The deadline for entries is August 2, so check out the past year's winners, and hop to it. [James Dyson Awards]
